Stayed out late, woke up with a mild headache

I went out to the city last night to see if I could meet some people here in Canberra. My friends are either away or not answering their email! So I want to meet some new people. Went to a couple of pubs and mustered up the courage to approach some people and say “Hi”… something I’ve never done before. Only about 50% seemed receptive, but that was enough to have a few conversations. Didn’t risk dancing or anything too energetic like that, but stayed out until about 1:30am.

Got home and had trouble sleeping. I was felt proud of my courage at meeting some new people. No idea what lasting impact that would have on the amygdala: I certainly felt stressed at the time, but quite courageous afterwards. Let’s hope it helps.

Today I woke up early and with a mild headache. I’ve had worse; I used to get screaming migraines. Took Nurofen, slept a bit more and felt better. I spent some time surfing other Chronic Fatigue Blog sites, and came across a mix of positive and negative comments about it . Did some Stop-Stop-Stop to get over the influence of the negative comments. Listened to the meditation CD this afternoon. Gonna stay in tonight so I feel better tomorrow.
